Possible South Africa Playing 11: South Africa have fought back to level the three-match Test series, 1-1 . Going into the third Test, South Africa have the momentum on their side, after a seven-wicket victory over India in the second Test. It was an inspired performance from the skipper himself, Dean Elgar who scored an unbeaten 96 to take his side past the finishing line against India. The hosts are expected to stick to the same playing 11, barring any forced changes due to injury.
